Baltimore and two other cities in Florida have fallen victims of ransomware. The city governments are troubled by the ransomware and malicious software which attacks the entire computer system and freezes up complete files of the computers. Baltimore and two cities in Florida found ransomware into their network in recent few weeks, and they have chosen to pay off.

Atlanta has also been attacked by ransomware when its municipal government’s system got hacked. Atlanta’s mayor is asking for federal help to gain freedom from the ransomware. Atlanta and Baltimore have been spending millions of dollars to unlock their data by getting the ransomware decoding key. In Florida, Riviera Beach paid $600,000 and Lake City paid almost $500,000 to get their data unlocked. These kind of deals are often done behind the door, not to let the public know about how much their online data is unsecured.

These cities may have been caught up by ransomware, but the governments are still incapable to avoid the attacks. They should look for companies like Techsperts, which have a team of engineers and researchers who provide Computer Services & IT Support. Instead of paying off the criminals, it is better to provide advanced IT training to the workforce or outsource the IT services.

Nobody knew much about ransomware before 2014, but when the malicious software started generating the new files by masking the existing data in the computers, ransomware came into existence. The criminal agencies have taken a year to know about the type of attacks. Atlanta and Baltimore are recent victims of a ransomware attack, which paid millions to the attackers to rehabilitate the system.
